Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia [IMHA].  A big diagnosis for a tiny girl, but this disease has stricken little Ginger and we are worried.  So many of you know little Ginger from our Sunday feeds – our little Super Star.  A paraplegic, she pushes us to get to the deworming part of the exam so she can share in the Roast Beef reward, always assuring us that she loves food.  She is one special doxie.

When Ginger declined food and developed a distended abdomen, we drew blood and knew she was in trouble.   It was a quick scoop and run to Red Bank Veterinary Hospital where the diagnosis was made official.

Ginger was admitted and has received a blood transfusion; she will probably need a second.  She has had radiographs and will also have an ultrasound to confirm that there is no bleeding in her belly.  Scary for her and all of us for sure.  She will be in hospital for at least 5 days.  All this will cost the rescue over $6,000, but we know Ging is a fighter and that makes the spend worth every penny.

IMHA is a tough disease, but Ginger and certainly the DRBC Team is tougher.  We know and have dealt with IMHA before.  It need not be a death sentence and if we have anything to say about it – it won’t be for the Ging!

Today we are reaching out and are asking for your help.  Please say you can.  The Covid-19 virus has left us really strapped so your gift today will mean so very much.  Prayers and well wishes are great, but they do not pay the bills.  Please step up and make a difference.  Ginger is a part of so many lives.  Please help us reach our goal of $6250; you can make a difference.  

Remember, your generous support is desperately needed and greatly appreciated.  Like many non-profit organizations DRBC is a 501[c][3] operated solely by volunteers.  We have been dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating, re-homing and educating families about this breed for over 36 years.  We welcome and need your benevolent tax-deductible donation.  Please, help us to help them. 

We welcome you to stay tuned for updates.  Until then, Ginger, all the rescue doxies and the DRBC Team thank you.
